Autumn set to appear right on schedule
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - We await our first true autumn cold front, which is set to arrive, ironically enough, on the first day of autumn (Wednesday).
Before that, we will have to continue to deal with warm and humid conditions. Temperatures will approach 90° Tuesday afternoon before the cold front arrives. The front will push through the area late Tuesday.
There will be about a 10 to 15-degree difference between Tuesday and Wednesday. The nice autumn weather will be hanging around for several days. Temperatures are forecast to be about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than normal for both daytime highs and morning lows through Saturday. Beginning Sunday of next week, we start to see a warming trend take place.
The area will get to see a much-needed drying trend as well. Rain chances will remain scattered Monday and Tuesday. After the front passes, drier air will work into the area and take rain out of the equation. We stay dry all the way into the middle of next week.
The tropics remain very active but none of the systems appear headed towards the Gulf. Tropical storms Peter and Rose are forecast to remain in the Atlantic, as are the remnants of Odette. A tropical wave is forecast to move through the eastern Atlantic in the coming days but we have lots of time to watch how this system progresses.
